Get what I need
Beginning my advanced education at community college was always the plan. My Mom earned her Registered Nursing degree at Rappahannock Community College when I was younger, a degree that made a big difference in the quality of my family’s life. Growing up, Rappahannock Community College was a part of my life. Community college is a great place to lay a foundation for the knowledge that will...

Every generation needs a new revolution.– Thomas Jefferson
I have not felt like writing lately. I have felt outside of my skin. Sorry, sweet tumblr, and whatever scant ears are around. There are of course things to write about. Hawt teachers, vindictive teachers; thankfully, they are not all one and the same. There are letters and lost and found acquaintances. But I have not felt like writing lately. Nope.
A man said to the universe: “Sir I exist!” “However,” replied the universe,...– Stephen Crane (via orangeskydontgo)
dearoldlove: I miss your hugs more than anything. I never felt so much comfort and warmth from a person so skinny before.
I have been watching a lot of The Wire lately. I still want more. Getting down to the wire!
This is a big surprise. I don’t agree with the concept of award ceremonies, but...– Banksy (via banksystreetart)

“Thus passes the glory of the world”
Well yea, there’s not a right or wrong answer, but there’s definitely a variety of ways to go about it, some of which may be better than others. It obviously doesn’t matter for you ksmi, because your stats are so ridiculous that you could write, “It’ll be hard for me to practice medicine in Virginia because the state has a really funny shape,” and still get...
Did anyone else ever cheat on eye exams when they were younger?
It’s just a shame you missed out on rock ‘n’ roll. It’s...– Lester Bangs, Almost Famous
a political wife
It occurred to me today that it would really suck to be a politician’s wife. A political wife makes all the same sacrifices, if not more, but without there ever being the chance that someday their face will be on money. Well, I guess political spouses in general. Sorry, Todd Palin.
Just remember, they can buy anything but they can’t buy backbone....– Herman Blume, Rushmore
Careful, man, there’s a beverage here!– The Big Lebowski
gotta get up pretty early to out bad me
Sometimes even at the end of really a sucky day, a twisted satisfaction can seep in from the simple and familiar. Or maybe that is just the feeling of flannel and hot tea. Two weeks and I am going to tell this semester to suck it. Thankfully, I have enough stubbornness to compensate for the shortcomings I may have in the smarts department. If there is anything I got good at working on political...
The new love of my life!
To me, it is not about getting over things and moving forward, it is about...– Justin Vernon’s mum about the song “Re: Stacks”
MSF has a "no weapons" policy in the health...
doctorswithoutborders: A strict ‘no weapons’ policy is the most visible outcome of our agreements with all warring parties. For the safety of patients, it is crucial that no armed people are in or near the hospitals, as the presence of anyone who is armed means the facility becomes a target of war. More from the interview with Country Representative Michiel Hofman, one year after MSF returned...

catch a train
I wish I could take a Darjeeling Limited-esq train adventure. If I had no commitments and the financial security, I absolutely would. I can think of at least a hand full of people from my past with whom I would happily be trapped in a train car with in a trans India adventure. People with whom I was once close and would be pleased to know again; a few school friends, a few politicos, a few...
